Caving/Spelunking advice and tips

Hi there, my fiancé and I currently reside in Denver CO but would like to learn how to cave on our own/are looking for beginning caves in CO we can explore ourselves. If anyone has any advice or tips we are all ears!

the NSS - National Speleological Society.  I am sure there is a grotto (speospeak for local group with regular meetings) that will be a really good beginning for responsible caving - which is a little tricky when you go underground,

Iwould think there are members who have done bona fide cave exploration - entering, and usually mapping, previously unknown and unentered cave passage.  This is a step up and you will need experience behind you for that.  It is a totally entrancing experience.

Best wishes on your caving journey, quite literally a voyage of discovery....
